As long as your video is transferred via Firewire into a DV AVI type 2 file (I don't know your camera) your edit footable is the best you can get
If what you want to create is a DVD, you already have Encore bundled with PrPro (I have the CS3 version of both)
Simply export as DV AVI and give that file to Encore... then tell Encore to use the AUTOMATIC setting when creating the DVD
Otherwise, work through all of the steps here http://ppro.wikia.com/wiki/Troubleshooting
If your problem isn't fixed, report back with the DETAILS asked for in the questions at the end of that link
There is no one 'best' format. For starters, you'll want different formats for diferent purposes - DVD, web site, computer playback, etc. Beyond that, there can be quite some experimentation to get the best results with your program material.
I will be putting this video on my website....is there a better format to export it in for that? Also, if I have quite a few different video effects and such, will that make the video harder to load online? I sent part of my video to someone on photobucket and they said it took awhile to load, is that because of all the effects? Or is that just because they have a slower computer? I just don't want to put the video on my website and it making the website hard to load up. I appeciate all the help, and I will be trying some different formats until I hear back from you guys. Let me know if you need any further details. Thanks again!
Does your web site specify a certain file type? With my Canon HD cam I use the H.264 encoding option for Vimeo upload. For DV file you could probably slide the Bit Rate down to 6Mbps for web use.
I use a program called V2F to make my web videos. I recommend it, especially for the inexperienced.
For DV file you could probably slide the Bit Rate down to 6Mbps for web use.
Huh? DV does not allow changing bit rates. It is not possible.
I've been working with my HD stuff. But when you encode to H.264 there must be a way to adjust bit rate with DV. I'll try it
I see what you mean. I meant a DV file encoded to H.264.
Just tried it. Looks good at 6Mbps.
